Why is it important?

IIRC, new character stats - and by extension everything else they get - are
randomly generated by the equivalent of dice rolls. You can create a new
character with whatever stats you like if you're patient enough to continue
"re-rolling" until you get them.

Most people don't bother.

To "read the code" you'd have to start with a UCSD Pascal p-code decompiler.
Got one handy?
